Mumbai: Stocks lost early gains to trade flat in morning session as banking, auto, FMCG and energy shares witnessed selling despite strong global cues.

The BSE Sensex was trading down by 36.06 points or 0.11 per cent at 33,776.69 at 0950 hrs.

The 30-share index had risen by 148.38 points, or 0.43 per cent, to 33,961.13 in opening trade with all sectoral indices led by realty, power and infrastructure advancing by up to 0.82 per cent.

In the auto space, Bajaj Auto, Tata Motors and M&M too were in keen demand largely on the back of encouraging sales data for December and gained up to 1.51 per cent.
